We were there for my birthday and we had snapper that was caught that day. Our waiter was Osiris and he was terrific. If you're ever in Playa De Carmen, you have to go here.

The BEST coconut shrimp I have even had - fresh, juicy, crisp and the mango/coconut cream sauce with balsamic was amazing!! Great service by manager, Osiris Campos. He is in the know about everything Playa so ask away. Enjoy!

I ate at Kool fish last week while on vacation in Playa, and I have to tell you, the food was mediocre at best, and the service (while friendly) was slow and inconsistent. TWO of the people in my party never got their dinner entrees. Nada. Of course the manager apologized, but it still didn't make up for them not eating that night. Embarrassing.
We all got fish or shrimp entree's, and they were simply just o.k.. The shrimp were smaller, like 40-50 per lb size, and you got about six of them with an entree.
I would walk right by Kool Fish, and hit some of the much more authentic seafood places down the street.

We ate at Kool Fish last year, and have talked about coming back the next time in Mexico. Last night we made it back and - once again were "wow'd" by the freshness, quality, and taste of our meals. We picked a fresh caught fish out of a cooler and had them fry it whole. Amazing! Just like last year.
The staff - Osiris particularly - are all very fun and just add to the experience. It's hard to beat sitting outside at night in the clean crisp Ocean air, cold margaritas, great seafood, and fun servers.

You can always count on great food and excellent service at Kool Fish!!!!! We had the lobster tonight and where not disappointed!!!! The food was great and the sauce was a very good choice. Beer is always cold. Osivis came and visited us to ensure we where happy with the dining experience and we where. We'll be back and real soon!!!!
